31. Little White Lies
"So, I'd like to know what's going on" Chloe announced.
"So would I " I raised my eyebrows up at Liam.
"Um...I" stammered Liam.
"Well, spit it out before you choke on it" I cried.
"Lucie that's enough!" Chloe hissed. A tear slid down Liam's cheek.
"Oh Li, I'm sorry" I said.
"Let's just forget about it, can we do that?" Chloe asked firmly. We both nodded. We walked back along the pier. SNAP!
"Did you hear that, do any of you feel like we're being followed?" I asked, panting.
"Yes, Zayn never let me out of his sight but he still hasn't admitted that he thinks somebody is following us" Chloe retorted.
We scanned the card through the hotel scanner. Niall was waiting for me at the door. I threw my arms around his neck and kissed him. Zayn and Chloe were clutching hands. Liam had Danielle wrapped in a weak hug. I suddenly fled a surge of anger. How could he do this to her? How could he do this to me? Nobody could restrain me from slapping him. But I restrained myself. He was one of my best friends and I knew I couldn't.
We all went to bed because we were all bloated. It was 3:44 in the morning when I decided to get a bath. I towelled myself dry and got dressed into a stripy t-shirt and blue pyjama shorts. I climbed into bed with Niall, seeking his warmth. He wrapped his arms around me.
"I love you" Niall whispered.
"I love you too, Ni" I replied. And I really did love him.
